Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurred pictures Whenever I shoot a picture the vibration warning comes up.  (Even if I'm holding the camera very still) Also, the "steady shot" picture comes up  on the screen and if there is any movement AT ALL (even very little) the picture is slightly blurry.

Re: blurred pictures

I had the same problem. The solution is in the manual but it is not straight forward. You have to set steady shot to auto when the shutter button is pressed half way down. The vibration warning will still show. At this point the camera is sensing low light. The to need to make sure the flash is set to always on. The flash setting for background will not turn the vibration warning off.

On my sony dslr a 300 the steady shot warning flashes at the bottom of the view screen like it is not able to steady the shot. this makes it is very hard to take a clear picture without it working...

Before you junk it, double check to make sure steady shot wasn't turned off. Also see if raising the ISO settings and increasing the aperture size fixes the motion blur (this will make image noise and depth of view blur increase though). Lastly Try resetting the camera to factory settings as a last resort.

Hope this helps.

Hi, the photos i take are getting blurred and the image is not at all clear no matter how shot the distance may be i click the image.the only new icon i see on the screen is vibration warning symbol along...

If you are shooting in Auto mode with flash, this should solve your problem. Make sure you are not dictating any of the settings, i.e. choosing a longer shutter speed, a very small aperture setting, or a very low ISO (sensitivity) setting.

Typically the vibration warning icon will appear when the camera is trying to use a long shutter speed without flash in order to get the right exposure for a darker scene. Your outdoor (bright light) photos are probably OK.

In dim light with a point and shoot camera, you can have your choice between 1. blurry (using a relatively slow shutter speed), 2. dark (using a shorter shutter speed but no flash), or 3. a good photo with flash (which uses a medium shutter speed and added light from the flash)

DSC T90 digital cam While taking pictures of any small movement, the picture blurs or shakes. Please give me solution to fix this problem

To remove the blur from photos, you need to be in a place where there is enough light to have a fast shutter speed. Using the camera indoors without the flash on will usually result in blurry photos.
Try using the flash.

Holding the camera with two hands or even better, on a tripod, will help too.
Happy shooting!

My sanyo vpc-s670r digital camera has a blurred shot. how can i fix this problem? i also clean the lens still blurred especially when shotting outdoor.

You must take pictures gently. Blur picture may occur if you move during capturing a picture. Or your hand move too fast after taking a picture. Try to stay still for two or three second after push the capture button.
Blur picture when shooting outdoor can be caused by too much light. Don't forget to set your camera in outdoor or panorama mode, and turn of the flash light if you think its too bright.

Hope this help and RATE please !

My photos are blurred 60% of the time. I think it takes too long when I push the button to take the photo...

Make sure that you have short enough exposure. I have taken steady shots with 1/8s and with some support (wall, table or similar) even 1/2s. Normally slower than 1/30s makes pictures blurred.
When shooting, don't **** the camera, but squeeze the trigger - your shots will improve. Trust me.

No good pictures

The symbols you are seeing are the blur warning indicators.

The yellow hand warns you that the picture may not be quite sharp enough for a standard 6" x 4" print - however you may be happy with it.

The red hand warns you that the picture is most likely to be poor quality, and won't produce a good 6" x 4" printed photo.

The reason you're getting these indoors, is that there's not enough light for the camera to take a good picture. As it tries to do so, it opens the shutter for longer to let more light in - however on doing so, if the camera isn't absolutely still, then the warning symbols will come on.

To remedy the above I'd have the following suggestion - if possible and practical, when shooting indoors, try and rest the camera on something solid when taking a photo. If this is not possible - try leaning against a wall to stabilise yourself. Even though you think you are holding the camera still - it's moving quite a lot.

Try one hand held photo - and one photo with the camera resting on something solid like a table and see what the difference is.

Picture is vibrating

Is Steady Shot on or Off? It should be in the "Shooting mode" unless you are using a tripod.
If the vibration goes away when steady shot is off you probably have a failing gyro.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55... Problem: "vibration warning" what is this?

My husband just discovered that it has to do with the flash setting. When the auto-flash and flash-on modes are on, it doesn't do it. When the "SL" mode is on - I get the Vibration Warning.

DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?

I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands). The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures. The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m.

Shooting in dim light with Sony T1

The T1 has the weakest flash of any digital camera. It is only rated for 4.9 feet coverage. So it is natural to want to try some low light techniques. But the T1 is also a point-and-shoot camera, with some scene modes. That means you have little control over low light situations. Under low light situations, it is best to use a tripod. But the T1 does not have a tripod socket. You want to set the shutter speed to a very low speed, the aperture to wide open and set the ISO to its highest setting. But the T1 will not let you control those adjustments. You can try the "Twilight" or "Twilight Portait" scene modes, and also set the Exposure Compensation to +2. Also set the flash to "off". Cross your fingers and fire away, even if the camera warns you there is not enough light. A dark picture is better than no picture. Sometimes you can "pump" it up with software.
